How much does it cost to hire a Senior Care Consultant? Fees vary from a few hundred dollars to thousands. I approach most cases with a three-step method, with each step costing around five hundred dollars.
Step 1 is a comprehensive evaluation, followed by presenting a report of elder care community options available, and specifically those who are qualified to meet the needs of my client. The report acts as a game plan from which they can make the first major decision.
Step 2 is an in-depth evaluation of the provider to get a real-time snapshot of what is happening with that care provider today. Have they lost a key staff member? Did the state recently site them for violations? Is the owner selling the community or is it going bankrupt? If this evaluation passes my test, then we can begin to negotiate with the community on a possible movement. We form relationships with key staff members, set expectations, and ensure the family is fully informed of what to expect in the days ahead. In other words, no surprises.
Step 3 is our managing the transition of the parent from their current situation to a new environment. This sounds routine, but it is not. My goal is to have a totally transparent move for which the senior does not have to endure the stress and the pressure of a move. We make sure all the paperwork is in place for a smooth transition. At Parkview Aging Services, our mission is to help families navigate complex senior care solutions. We will evaluate your situation, and present you with realistic options to accomplish your goals for your loved one.
